The comedian has agreed a deal to host Late Night with Seth Meyers through 2025, which should take him to around 1,800 episodes of the show.

It has become a ritual — a somewhat inexplicable one, as TBS’s Conan O’Brien noted — for these comics to come on the air after acts of terrorism, school shootings or other national traumas to try to make sense of them for their audiences. “Today feels very different,” O’Brien said Monday night. “It doesn’t feel right to talk about my feelings of sadness and anger.

NBC said Sunday that 12-year Saturday Night Live cast member Seth Meyers will replace Jimmy Fallon at the 12:35 a.m. Late Night show next year. Fallon is moving up an hour as Jay Leno’s replacement on the Tonight show.
Jimmy Fallon’s march to inherit The Tonight Show is nearly complete. The Late Night host has closed a new deal with NBC that will pave the way for him to replace Jay Leno in the 11:35 p.m. slot, a well-placed source says. The timing and nature of the Fallon announcement is said to be in flux, with some at NBC said to believe that the network should wait to confirm the Tonight transition until it can close a deal with Fallon’s replacement.
